COLWYN Bay FC are holding a special meeting this week where their long-term future will be decided.

The Seagulls are exploring the possibility of a return to the Welsh pyramid system due to their significant financial problems, and a Shareholders’ Meeting will take place at the Four Crosses Construction Arena on Thursday, March 7 where those in attendance will vote on which direction the club should go in moving forward.

To ensure they are fully prepared to commit to a decision on their future, Bay chairman Bill Murray has made contact with representatives from the Football Association of Wales, asking a series of questions and requesting reassurances which will be answered in time for the meeting.

He said: “The club have made contact with the FAW to attain further information regarding the possibility of returning to the Welsh Football Pyramid.

“The club have asked a series of questions and have had assurances that answers to those questions will be with us in time to share with all parties prior to next Thursdays scheduled shareholders meeting.”

The vote will be to either stay in the English system or return to the domestic game, and anyone that is unable to attend the meeting but would still like to vote can do so by emailing

Proxy votes must be submitted by 12 noon on the day of the meeting.

The vote will also have a big impact on the future of manager Craig Hogg and assistant Neil Coverley, who stated they will wait to hear of the club’s “strategic direction” before deciding whether or not they want to be part of the new plans.

Hogg, said: “My future will be clearer once the club has come to a final decision and has formalised its strategic vision moving forward.”
